Dead but still kicking: youngest supernova imaged just after explosion

To catch a supernova is not an easy task. To detect it with radio telescopes requires hard work, extensive coordination and good luck. An international team of astronomers, including researchers at JIVE and ASTRON, has taken a picture of the youngest radio supernova ever.

JIVE and ASTRON host annual "Girlsday 2011"

On 14 April, 32 middle school students from the north of Holland visited JIVE and ASTRON as part of the annual "Girlsday", to learn about careers in astronomy and engineering.

Astronomers simulate real-time telescope as big as the world to study peculiar active galaxy

Using a perfectly orchestrated world-wide network of radio telescopes, astronomers have produced a high-resolution map of an AGN belonging to an unknown class of gama-ray sources. The unusual source and the groundbreaking technique used to produce the image are detailed in a letter published today in Astronomy & Astrophysics.

NEXPReS to further advanced computing and networking for astronomy use

The EC has awarded the new NEXPReS project 3.5 million euros to advance data transfer, buffering, storage and distributed computing technologies. The improvements are expected to significantly enhance the "e-EVN Programme", a SKA Pathfinder Technology.

Girlsday 2010: girls on board at ASTRON and JIVE

This Thursday 22 April, 30 high school girls from three schools in the North of the Netherlands visit ASTRON and JIVE during Girlsday 2010.

Magnetic control of massive stellar appetites

A team of astronomers, including Dr. Huib Jan van Langevelde of JIVE, has shown that magnetic fields play an important role during the birth of massive stars. They report their work in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Astronomers in the Netherlands catch supernova, observe relativistic expansion

Astronomers from JIVE and ASTRON have observed a supernova with peculiar radio emission. In a paper published in Nature, the team led by JIVE's Zsolt Paragi reports, for the first time ever, detection of a relativistic outflow in a Type Ic supernova, thus supporting the link with the even more energetic Gamma Ray Bursts.
